    I can't decide if I'd just squirrel it away or give to "she who must be obeyed" to curry some favor. I do need some (some favor too.) Oh heck, look for a small used plasma cutter that'd run off my Genset.

    At this point and juncture, I'd put it into silver as a hedge against QE adnauseum.
    That would be about 23 ounces of .9999 or 32.00 face value of pre 1965 US 90% Silver coinage.

    Not as a long term prep but for the intermediate hedge and store of value between our dollar crashing and what ever is next.

    A tower for the radio antenna. Other than that, I think I haven't overlooked anything. Study on this site has let me plug a LOT of holes that used to exist.

    I just keep picking up 90& silver as I can, plus working on the new abode. Otherwise I am pretty well set.

    If I had an extra $500, I'd put it in a prep that means the most to me right now. On my medical incurred debt from back in February!

    Probably would want an Excalibur dehydrator and an All American pressure cooker/canner. Or maybe use it to get our new cats fixed so we won't have to worry about getting more mouths to feed.
